Grand Baie Bazaar, Grand Baie

2.1
#2 of 7 in Shopping in Grand Baie
Browse the busy stalls at Grand Baie Bazaar, a covered craft market. Find handmade trinkets, textiles, and ornaments alongside tourist souvenirs, and remember to haggle for what you choose to get the best possible price. Some of the jewelry stores here have real bargains if you know what you're looking for among the wide variety of gold pieces, semi-precious stones, and gems. The mock-designer clothing, on the other hand, can be pretty low on quality. Head to one of the snack stands to refuel with some authentic Mauritian street food.

  • The covered market is not a big interest. A lot of fakes... Shop jewelry fear the attention but it is not certain that this is interesting even in discussing. You can access the market through a side street that runs along the beach with shops selling almost all the same (sarongs made in india has 65/70 rps, towels, souvenirs of all kinds...) On this street, on the right coming from the beach avoid falling into the trap to tourist of the Shoemaker who is rode. The latter tries to lure you. All means are good for you give him one of your shoes. It puts you to sleep, he loves shoes and wants to see them... Take you one look at her and tells you to fix them, it's bad for your back to walk with such shoes. He disassembled the sole, before you give your consent and you request 300 rps for the work. It is a scam but leave themselves completely have because is not usual in Mauritius.

  • A fascinating market filled not only with local souvenirs and trinkets, but a variety of clothes, baskets, tablecloths and much more. The sellers are wonderful, warm, friendly people, happy to bargain...  more »

  • The word here is HAGGLE! They have to good quality items but they inflate the prices ridiculously. A polo t-shirt that should sell for 400 rupees would start at 1200 rupees. You have to be firm and persistent, wear them down😀 if not you will part with your hard earned money. It’s good that they accept payment in dollars and Euros as well. They also sell some very high quality copies of major high end brands. I come from South Africa and i must say prices here in Mauritius for the same quality of items are way cheaper than in South Africa up to 30-50%
  • Expensive and too cramped with hawkers trying to sell you anything. The normal department stores in town have a better selection at a cheaper price. Not recommend unless just for a visit out of interest.
